Charles Manson Haunt, Spahn Movie Ranch, Hell or Hollywood History?

Charles Manson Haunt, Spahn Movie Ranch, Hell or Hollywood History? I am really going off the beaten path today as Christa, my daughter, and I decided to have an adventure in Hollywood history this week while we were off for the holiday and the reaction of others to our destination was quite surprising to me.  We went to the infamous Spahn Movie Ranch which was home to Manson and The Family at the time of the Tate/La Bianca murders. Having spent many years of my early career working in death row and criminal law I was interested in the...

The Opinionated Bitch – on ‘What Are Women For’?

The Opinionated Bitch – on ‘What Are Women For’? My attention was drawn to an article sweeping across the ether entitled What Are Women For? by James Poulos in The Daily Caller. I ignored it until, while getting ready for work yesterday, I heard him defending the piece on “Up With Chris Hayes” and the conversation drew me into the room. Carefully listening for the basis of his thesis, it dawned on me, there wasn’t one, so I gave in and found his piece on the web that you can read in its entirety here. Let me say it’s...

I’m Not the Reason We Can’t Have Nice Things

I’m Not the Reason We Can’t Have Nice Things Back in the 60’s, I was raised in what was considered a traditional American home. I had two parents who loved each other very much. Aside from the size of our brood, we pretty much looked like every other family we knew. I think a good deal of learning how to live in a civilized society actually came from growing up in a crowded field of siblings. You learn early how to negotiate, how to give and take, how to share and the value of kindness. There was a sense...

Plus Size Model – Do You Think She’s Lovely?

Plus Size Model – Do You Think She’s Lovely? Using the photo below, I ran a post on my fb page about the plus-size model industry, and I received an overwhelmingly positive response. She is a beautiful woman. (Featured image and photo below: Plus-size model Katya Zharkova. Photo credit: Victoria Janashvili/Plus Model Magazine, www.plusmodelmag.com) When I saw this picture I was immediately struck by how familiar she looked. Not that I’d ever seen this particular woman before – but her body, with all of its so-called imperfections, the extra flesh on her bottom, the curve of her stomach and the...

To Forgive and Not to Forget that is the Question

To Forgive and not to Forget that is the Question A plethora of souls have come to me to connect to their loved ones from the other side. Those who have crossed over and those who are in the physical repetitively ask me, “will they forgive me” of course not all souls, but several of them during my readings. What I am going to share with you is that here in the physical people ask for forgiveness and that is a reasonable request. Some revert in the opposite direction feeling that they choose not to forgive. I just will...

Jesus is Not On Trial

Jesus is Not On Trial Aside from pointing and laughing on social media, I’ve remained largely silent on the subject of Kim Davis, the Rowan County, Kentucky Clerk who has turned herself into a media whore celebrity by discriminating against same-sex marriage and going to jail for directly defying a Federal judge who previously ordered her to do her job and comply with the law in issuing marriage licenses. And while I have no doubt her motives have more to do with financial gain and media attention and a lot less to do with her closely held religious beliefs, it’s her...
